Opposition leader Andrea Horwath is not a fan of the supermarket chain that sells alcohol in the province

7-11 is not a restaurant regardless of what they argue or what deal they make with Doug Ford They shouldn’t get alcohol permits to allow drinking in their stores, it’s not fair to go to & bars with local restaurants too fight, and it won’t make anyone’s life better

She says, “This should be about our local restaurants and bars and making sure they are able to crawl out of what happened with COVID-19, and not transfer half of their business or more to a local one Give 7-Eleven””
